We are all getting excited that we will once again be able to be together in person this school year! As we get ready, we are going to be implementing a few new things to help make registration a little easier for you. We are limiting enrollment this Fall so please complete your paperwork ASAP. 

  • New Registration system! For now, please register by completing the Primetime Registration Form and submitting via email OR stop by the Amherst Recreation Office (M-F, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM)
  • If you need financial aid, please complete the Fee Subsidy Application and return as soon as possible.
  • Once our new online registration system is up and running, we will ask that you complete all required paperwork via your ePACT account. Upload all paperwork safely through our HIPAA compliant and paperless documentation system.
